Fulham has regularly competed in the top-flight of English football in recent years, but have failed to find stability in the Premier League; seasons are often met with relegation survival attempts and overall, the Fulham faithful will be hoping to see stability and progression in one of the most competitive leagues in the world. Founded in 1879 and nicknamed ‘The Cottagers’ or ‘The Whites’, Fulham have endured some success in their history - both domestically and on a European scale.
Premier League football has become an extremely difficult division to achieve success from; the big clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United all have the financial resources to continue to develop and push the gap between the smaller clubs. However, Fulham will be hoping to transition into a club regularly competing in the top-half of the table and challenging for a European spot.
Overall, the Cottagers have endured some impressive accolades in their history. Fulham are two-time winners of the second tier of English football - once in 1948/49 and the other in 2000/01. In more recent times, the club has won promotion from the Championship to the Premier League, occurring in both 2018 and 2020.
As for cup competitions, Fulham are yet to win either the FA Cup or League Cup. The closest they came to breaking that record was during the 1974/75 campaign, but could only finish as runners-up in the FA Cup Final. Surprisingly, the west-London club do have some European success; after winning the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2002, Fulham came ever-so close to winning the Europa League in the 2009/10 campaign, but lost in the final to Atletico Madrid.
Fulham fans will be hoping to see more wonderful, European nights at Craven Cottage in the near future and if they can find a way to stabilise in the Premier League, they will have the chance to push on and compete for Europe.
